Summertime
© Mr. Blink


It's a cold, grey, world - it's a black and white world
Winter seems so long and lonely, never wants to end
Hiding out inside my bed - it's always warm inside my head
I can't wait 'til all my problems melt away with the snow

Summertime---------------------------------------Summertime

I'm wishin' it was summertime, then I could be out fishin'
and maybe watch the girls across the river - they've all got tans
they're so stuck up - they've all got tans - so dark and brown
Maybe I can find one - and she can hang around

Summertime

Winter is so cold, you've got to wear a lot of clothes
you've got to wear a lot of clothes, 'cause winter is so cold
You've got to wear your sweaters - you've got to wear your gloves
you've got to wear long underwear - you've got to wear your coats
But I can't wait 'til summer - the sun will be out shining
It'll be so hot - so god-damned hot
It'll be so hot - so god-damned hot
We can wear our favorite clothes - we can wear our favorite clothes
I've got a favorite T-shirt - I've got a favorite T-shirt
- the one I got at REM
